VLADGMRU :

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

VLADGMRU :

My name is Vlad.

VLADGMRU :

You car has only one fuse box and it is located in the engine compartment under the bonnet. You can find it just next to the battery.

VLADGMRU :

I have some news that you might not expect to hear but there is no fuse for reverse lights on your car. The Body Control Module supplies +12V to the rear back-up lamps and this circuit is not protected by any fuse. The system is supposed to be diagnosed with a DRB III scan tool. It is possible that you have just a wiring issue but I have seen once when the BCM was the reason.

VLADGMRU :

You can disconnect the BCM connector C2 and supply +12v to the terminal #9 which is White/Light Green wire. if your reverse lights come ON when you supply power, then your wiring to the back-up lamps is OK and the BCM for some reason does not supply voltage to this circuit. It could be BCM itself or it might not receive request from another module . This is a pretty complex system and that is why I mentioned a DRB III scan tool. Without the scan tool it could be just easily misdiagnosed resulting in unnecessary parts replacing.

Customer:

Hi,

Customer:

Thanks for that Vlad,

Customer:

The reason for wanting the fuse for the reverse light is I am trying to fit a reverse camera and was hoping to take the trigger for it from the fuse. Whilst trying to find it and then trying to trace back from the globe I accidently shorted it out. The interesting thing was that 30mins after i did this the light worked again, as though the "fuse" had reset itself. I have not had much experience working with the electrics of these cars. I guess ill have to run the trigger wire from the rear of the car unless you have an alternative location?

VLADGMRU :

Hi,

VLADGMRU :

Because the reverse lights are controlled by the Body Control Module, the BCM is smart enough to see a short and disable the circuit to prevent the future damage. After the problem solved, it will start working again.

VLADGMRU :

You connect your trigger wire at the rear lamps or you can T-splice at the BCM connector C2 to to the White/Light Green wire which is terminal #9.

VLADGMRU :

The BCM is located closer to the RH side kick panel, you should be able to find it if you check the area where your brake and accelerator pedals are.
